So...I appreciate all the advice around here on dealing with my squirrel problems. If anyone has more advice, please keep it coming. They're getting on my deck via the adjacent trees and the vertical supports (I'd put metal flashing up the supports so they can't climb it, but they're just gonna use the trees)
Anyway, I have tried EVERYTHING. Nothing is working - more ideas? Anyone?
I had several more tomato seedlings have all of the leaves eaten off them as you see below, in addition to the bastards chewing my small japanese maples in half like beavers.
Well, I got sick of it. This weekend, I built the contraption below from a piece of leftover dog crate, some zip ties and masonite. I will probably cap the ends off with steel if it works. Hoping this will squirrel-proof my seedlings? Suggestions welcome, of course.
